Father Pablo Straub, CSSR

We just got word that Fr. Pablo Straub passed away this morning. He spoke to us many times at the monastery, and we always picture him holding the large crucifix which was ever-present when he preached. Please pray for the repose of the soul of this holy priest who touched many, many souls in his lifetime.

Eternal rest grant unto him, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon him. May his soul, and the souls of all the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen.

  1. Yes, as another reader said, a Franciscan friend introduced me to the knowledge of Fr. Leo Clifford and I loved watching him and listening to his brief but holy chats on EWTN. We have lost those who brought us closer to God and to the Faith. Thank you God for giving these holy priests to us, and please have mercy on us and all priests and give us others like them.

  2. November 28,2015 I don’t know if this site on Fr. PStraub is still active. I have been thinking of Father as I was noticing I was seeing him as usual on EWTN. I missed him and decided to “google” his name to find this news. I suspected as much, but I am still saddened by learning this. He appeared to be such a good and holy person; his love of the Lord inspired me in my fidelity to my faith. God bless him. And thank God for giving him to us. JoAnn p.s. I wonder if Pope Francis knows of him; he seems the type to love this good man and speaks his language.

  3. Father Pablo, you will be missed along with the likes of Father Leo Clifford whom I also loved and was very inspiring. Pray for me and my family as they really need conversion which I can’t seem to get through to them.

  4. May the gentle soul of Fr. Pablo and the souls of the faithful departed rest in perfect peace through Jesus Christ our Lord, Amen.


  6. What a tremendous loss to the USA and the world—this saintly priest whom we first saw & heard at Our Lady of Piece in Santa Clara, CA along with Fr. John Sweeney, another saintly priest. We can still benefi by his recordings on EWTN. Thank you.

  7. Thank you Father Pablo for your teachings, for your love to the Hispanic community. May God bless your soul. Please don’t forget us when you meet our Father in heaven. Dale Señor el descanso eterno y brille para su alma la luz perpetua.

  8. Matt 25:21 23 ” Well done good and faithful servant ” May his soul and all the souls of the faithful departed rest in peace. What a privilege to have listened to this holy priest at the San Antonio EWTN Family celebration . He spread the message far and wide and will be remembered with great love and charity. Thanks be to God!

  9. I cannot tell you how very much I loved Pablo Straub. I was one of his many spiritual daughters and will cherish all of the private spiritual direction he gave me when he was in the United States. Pray for me Pablo from your real home in Heaven

  10. Rest in Peace Father. You are definitely a Saint.

    Father invested me in the brown scapular that I continue to wear daily. He definitely helped change my life forever by planting seeds. The Blessed Virgin has a bigger smile today.

  11. I met Fr. Pablo Straub at my Church “San Secondo D’Asti Catholic Church” in Guasti CA. a few years ago. Fr. Louis Marx our beautiful Pastor at San Secondo allowed a mission back then in which Fr. Pablo presided. http://www.sansecondodasti.org/

    I’m an usher at San Secondo and noticed Fr. Pablo sitting in the sacristy and was so overwhelmed by his holiness, I invited my wife over to meet Fr. Pablo so we could receive a blessing together.

    This you might find interesting, as my now wife and I were kneeling in front of Fr. Pablo receiving our blessing he asked, “Do you have children?”, we replied “No Father not yet, but we are trying to have children”. he then looked away puzzled for a moment, turning back to us he said “You do have children, you two boys”, I looked at my wife as I had tears, she also had tears and said, “Fr. 15 years ago we were very young and scared, we aborted two pregnancies which were both about 4 weeks into her pregnancy”, Fr. Pablo looked at us and said “Don’t worry they are with Jesus right now, you will see them again”.

    Please pray for Fr. Pablo as I will, such a beautiful Catholic Priest will never be forgotten.

    God Bless You Fr. Pablo Forever in Our Hearts And Prayers.

  14. I watched Father Pablo Straub on EWTN many times during Lent. His Lenten devotions were lovely and very helpful to me. I will miss hearing more from him. Thank you for letting us know
    of his passing.

  15. Dear Father is now in the arms of the Jesus that he so loved. When he would preach he would look at the cross and at that time you know he was not speaking to us but to the Lord himself. I will truly miss this holy man of God. May he nw rest in peace in the loving arms of his crucified Saviour.

My Mother had just passed a few days prior to EWTN coming to town, and I found a healing peace in talking to him and his blessing me. What a beautiful Spirit filled soul. Viva Cristo Rey, Viva la Virgen de Guadalupe!
